Constituency change for Wotton-under-Edge

MOST READ

The General Election on July 4 will see people in Wotton-under-Edge voting for a Stroud MP for the first time. 

 Labour’s Parliamentary candidate for Stroud, Dursley GP Dr Simon Opher, has welcomed new voters from Wotton-under-Edge to the constituency.  

“Wotton-under-Edge is a vibrant market town with a really strong community and it’s great to be able to welcome Wotton voters to be part of the revised Stroud constituency, said Dr Opher. 

“I’ve been talking to people in Wotton-under-Edge this weekend. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know them and the issues they care about. There have been lots of conversations about the need for a greener economy, and support for our high streets.  

“We’re blessed with fantastic towns in the constituency; Nailsworth, Stonehouse, Stroud, Dursley and Cam and Berkeley and it’s great to have Wotton-under-Edge as part of that family. I’m campaigning to revive and protect our high streets – thriving market towns are such an important part of Gloucestershire life. 

“If I’m elected I’ll be working hard to represent the people of Wotton, along with all the parts of our diverse Stroud constituency.” 

The Stroud parliamentary constituency has been revised following a national review by the Boundary Commission, and now includes Wotton-under-Edge.

With a strong commitment to social justice, people’s health, and environmental sustainability, Dr Opher is dedicated to representing the diverse voices of Stroud and working towards a brighter future for all constituents. 

Dr Opher is also urging everyone to make sure they make their voices heard in the General Election.  With the General Election fast approaching, he is concerned that some may miss their chance to make their vote count.
